1. I'm interested in hearing what version of Python everybody is
running, on which operating system, distro and version. Please post
your results! Especially if python3 is the default, or if you have any
other problems running the examples.

Python 2.6.5 on Linux, Ubuntu 10.04

 2. Why are there two commas in print "Hello,", name? What do you
think the difference is between them?

First comma's to be printed, the other tells the program something.

 3. Anyone know why the language was named Python?

No idea without googling.
